A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Yes, you're smart. But not better.

Again another rant about "smart kids". I consider myself smart but unlike some people I don't look down on the kids who are getting low grades. "Some people aren't very intellectual, so I'm glad I am." Just because you're in a couple advanced classes doesn't mean you know everything. Those so called "dumb kids" could posses talents that you will never have. So that's my rant for the day.
